8. Flying Taxi Service
Why drive somewhere when you could fly? In places like New York City, traffic is notoriously horrible. It takes so long to get from one end of the city to another, that you could be in the car for over an hour just to drive a couple miles. That’s why a lot of rich people opt to pay for helicopter taxis to take them from place to place…For the longest time, this was something that only the elites could afford. Now, you can get a helicopter service for a few hundred dollars. Typically, this is used by New Yorkers who are trying to get to the airport in under 10 minutes, instead of waiting an hour in traffic. For most people, it’s worth leaving early and bearing the commute, instead of wasting so much money.
But now, thanks to modern technology, flying taxis are now closer than you might think. Recently, information on Uber Elevate was released online, showcasing Uber’s plans to expand to offering travel via small aircrafts. In 2020, Uber Elevate was purchased by Joby Aviation. Maybe someday, our world really will look like Tomorrowland.
